Charlie: Alan, there’s something you should know about me. When I say I understand, it doesn’t mean I agree. It doesn’t mean that I understand. It doesn’t even mean that I’m listening.
Alan: Then why do you say it?
Charlie: It makes people happy. That’s what I’m all about.
Alan: That’s all altruistic, but I would prefer that you be straight with me. Just keep in mind that we have an impressionable young boy living here.
Charlie: I understand.
